FORMER Colchester United defender Cohen Bramall has signed for Championship side Rotherham United on a three-year deal.

The 26-year-old, who made 68 appearances in all competitions for the U's between August 2019 and February 2021, has joined the Millers for an undisclosed fee.

Bramall told the Rotherham official website: "I'm just happy it's got done and I'm buzzing to get started.

"I can't wait to meet the lads and I'm excited.

"I've been speaking to the gaffer (Paul Warne) now for a while.

"He's been amazing with me and hopefully, I'll see him soon - he's a great guy."

Bramall helped Colchester reach the League Two play-offs under John McGreal, scoring in the first leg of their semi-final defeat against Exeter City in 2020.

He left to join Lincoln in February 2021 and made 54 appearances across all competitions during a two-year spell at LNER Stadium.

The former Arsenal youngster helped Lincoln to the League One play-off final in 2020/21.
